Left only turn issues

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 13:08, Wed 4 December 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 2 minutes later. ref: 1874501.

Is this road going to continue as a left only turn into sywell road as if your heading into Northampton from Kettering, every morning I nearly witness an accident with vehicles who cannot wait in the cue get to the roundabout in the left lane (which is left only) and enter the roundabout on the hatched area to push in past the cued traffic to turn right. Something needs to be looked at here as it not only angers people but someone will get hurt

  • Thank you for your query to Northamptonshire County Council’s Street Doctor Service with regard to the misuse of the lanes on the southbound approach to the A43 Mouton roundabout. A new dual carriageway section of the A43, linking from the Moulton roundabout to the Round Spinney roundabout, bypassing the existing road, is currently under construction and should be open to traffic by spring 2020. The old A43 Kettering Road will be stopped up and The lane marking on the A43 approach to the Moulton roundabout will therefore be revised, along with the road signs, so that both lanes can be used to access the new A43 dual carriageway which will resolve the current issue. I hope that this explains the situation.
